Diligo.com - A Gaming Ad Display Company

The meet was really great and he gave some really good insights.. which we are planning to implement on and.... his advice regarding the marketing thing was we really hadn't thought of before so we are planning to implement that also. We also got many actionable insights and the way forward is very clear after this meeting. I give 5 stars! - Harshdeep Singh, Co-founder, Diligo.

Why your company needs a mentor!

Rohit W spent 3 years building his software product - and another year perfecting it. Then he hired a salesperson to help him sell. He was amazingly not getting much success. Rohit approached me for help.

Analysis: Any mentor could have told Rohit to first analyze the market and establish the need for his product - before spending an insanely long time of 4 years ( time, efforts, money) to build his product.

Don't be like Rohit! Get a mentor as early in your business as possible.

P was a very nice guy I met at one of the Startups Meetup. He was a developer earlier and had quit his job to work on his own product. He was quite reticent to talk about it and I never pushed him.

Fast-forward 2 years and P called me for a meeting. He showed me his product and asked for my help in finding investors.

Unfortunately, unknown to P, there were already 2 big companies already making waves in the market doing the exact same thing that his product did - but with more features and in a much better way!

Don't be like P! Get a mentor who can warn you of pitfalls.

Latha started a blog in the year 2012 - because she was home for maternity leave. She had decided to use the time at home to create a working business; while at the same time taking care of her new baby.

Come 2016, and Latha approached us to find a way to monetize her blog. We looked at the analytics and were not happy with what we saw!

Don't be like Latha! Approach a mentor who will work out your business plan - and especially the monetization before you put years of work into it.
